The Nuance Collection

Everybody loves a cool tee! It’s undeniable. We all want our t-shirts to feel great, fit perfectly, and be unique. A shirt can be worn strictly for the color, while another just for the style. Some shirts may be worn because of the funny, or perhaps, inspiring words written on them.

Recently, I came across a trending company working to create a simple statement. The Nuance Collection plays on the sharp simplicity of shirts. This company is leaving their mark by creating a new twist with an original feel.

The designs are based off of the classic t-shirt using quality skins imported from South East Asia and New Zealand. Snakeskin and Lambskin are used in creating what has quickly become their ‘defining look.’

Other notable designs include scoop necks, zippers, full skin shirts, and hooded sweatshirts.


While playing on subtle details and bold personalities, Nuance is stirring a name for itself.
The Nuance Collection is a brand that is AGS approved for its superior quality and identifiable uniqueness.

If you’re looking for a great tee or sweatshirt check out The Nuance Collection. You just may come across your next favorite shirt. Be on the watch for many other items to step up your clothing rank.

Reinterpreting the suit


In New York, there is a constant movement for the latest and greatest. This season guys are looking at themselves and giving a new spin on the classic suit. This doesn’t necessarily mean that men are wearing entire suits, but more so wearing pieces of the suit that are integrated into their casual look.

Many men are wearing classic tailored blazers with their casual outfit. This gives them a refined look, while at the same time making them stand out. When choosing what type of blazer to wear, make sure that it fits you. Nothing looks less put together then a man wearing a blazer that is too big or too small.

Don’t be afraid to wear or buy a blazer with color or patterns on it. This is almost always a great way to ensure a fresh look. Bold colors with great detailing give the appearance of creative force. While a form-fitted cut molds a smooth overall look. These pieces have a stronger presence on men built for confidence. In deciding on a new piece to buy, have something that you are attracted to. The purpose is to be able to see your character and image through your clothing. You want to make sure that you are original and not just your average dressed guy. Also be weary to putting too many different colors together. This works for some outfits, but with most it just looks scattered.  Have a color that you use to ‘pop’ the outfit and bring it together.  Finding a blazer with intriguing designs is a simple way to do that.

Putting together an outfit sometimes can be a daunting task.  Keep in mind, to look at the versatility of the blazer.  You want to be able to have a blazer that can be worn to different functions and look different as well.   A blazer made with a nice quality fabric does a great job at being versatile.  These are normally pieces that can be mixed and matched to create several looks.

Blazers are quickly becoming a staple piece for the modern man.  There are a lot of aspects that go into the selection process.
